Best key piece for Ben Simmons? 

Post#1 » by SUPERVILLAIN » Thu Oct 14, 2021 5:40 am

All of the listed options are based on reported offers/rumors on the internet.

* Pistons: Jerami Grant
* Pacers: Malcolm Brogdon & Caris LeVert
* Timberwolves: D'Angelo Russell
* Spurs: Dejounte Murray & Lonnie Walker
* Kings: Buddy Hield & Davion Mitchell

* "Philadelphia has been unmoved by the Pacers’ ability to offer Malcolm Brogdon and Caris LeVert as the headliners of a trade package." - https://hoopshype.com/2021/10/08/76ers-unmoved-by-pacers-potential-trade-scenarios-for-ben-simmons/

* “In any trade for Simmons, the Wolves would also consider Anthony Edwards to be completely untouchable. The Wolves would prefer to keep D’Angelo Russell but are believed to be willing to trade him if necessary.” - https://dunkingwithwolves.com/2021/10/07/minnesota-timberwolves-more-ben-simmons-reports-continue-to-make-noise/

* "Sam Amick, also of The Athletic, reported earlier this summer that the Sixers asking price was too steep for the Kings and that the team was refusing to part with either De’Aaron Fox or Haliburton in a potential Simmons deal.

Mitchell, however, was not mentioned in that reporting, so it will be interesting to see if he could end up as the centerpiece of a Simmons deal. Buddy Hield’s name was also included as a guy that the Sixers should have interest in as a potential fit spotting up around their franchise centerpiece Joel Embiid." - https://www.sactownroyalty.com/2021/10/8/22716545/ben-simmons-trade-rumors-no-problem-sacramento-kings

IMO it'll also depends on which and how many picks are attached to each package. But of the choices
1. Pistons offer is hot gaaabage
2. Pacers offer is okay
3. DLO Trash
4. Spurs solid offer (But White over Walker)
5. Kings solid offer

I'd probably say kings or Spurs have the best package without knowing picks.

Odd take. I believe Spurs offered the worst key pieces. By far.

Well nevermind. Just noticed that you casually changed the equation by replacing Walker with White.

Would not be the Cavs offer. It would be Sexton and Love, plus picks, I'm guessing...

Nope , Philly knows Sexton and Love is bad Karma together - and the Cav's know they have to up there offer with so many Players involved.

None of those. Morey isnt trading Ben for anyone outside of a perennial all NBA first or second team player.

So Morey isn't trading Simmons unless it is for a better player than him?

i'm sure there must have been a rumor somewhere of simmons for kyrie straight up. it's a natural in every way including both being numbskulls

and guess what. neither will play for their teams so the nets and philly would both be trading one dead weight for another. and now kyrie has clarified that he is not retiring, leaving this synergistic trade to happen :D :D :D

Assuming there are picks attached, I'd have traded Simmons to Indiana for Brogdon and LeVert yesterday. Even though they are shipping out the best player the Sixers get two nice fits to go with Embiid.

Melo and amare should thrive in this offense. If Jeremy Tyler and cole Aldridge looked that good in summer league then us knick fans have a lot to be excited about. Make room for all the bandwagoners when we take off

I'm the only one on earth, but do think Lonnie is a few tweaks and some experience away from being a superstar scorer.

The guy can get a quiet 30 effortlessly on his best night and has little idea what he is doing, and currently only has one hand.

With the right coaching and opportunities he could be a better scorer than Devin Booker.

Cavs are not trading Garland, he's probably the most underrated asset in the league

Or the Cavs can pass, hold onto Garland, and wait for Love to take a buyout as early as this season. The Cavs don't HAVE to be the winning bidder as badly as teams further along do. What is Simmons going to do? Take us out of the lottery and into the play-in for MAYBE a 1st round stomping by the Nets? YAY!!! :hug: :rockon: :beer:

Where is the "none of the above" selection option in the poll?

If brogdon wasn't hurt all the time, i would have said the pacers package by a mile. Unfortunately you can't pair an injury prone guard with Embiid.
I'll go with Buddy/Mitchell. Provides some shooting and maybe help offset some of the defense lost by trading simmons.
